The purpose of this expo is to highlight the importance and the fun of fitness and health. Nearly one third of our state is obese. Obesity is the cause of many life threatening medical conditions most of Americans face every day. We want to show how easy it is to find help here in the city of Wichita alone. Wichita has so many gyms, trainers, coaches, nutritionists, and other outlets to promote a healthier lifestyle. Saturday, we will have boot camps, question and answer panels, and even a show from our guest Keven “Da Hulk” Washington. It’ll be a day to remember.

Also, we want to highlight the fashion companies that our city has to offer. Not only do we want there to be local fashion companies there as vendors but on Sunday, we want to put on a fashion show to display the variety of choices and trends here in the city. We believe that the best way to make the city better to support the local businesses. The fashion show will be the highlight for our Sunday. We should have a great turnout for the event and every company involved will get lots of exposure and lots of chances for revenue there at the expo.
